A surprise wedding is a delightful event. I once married a couple from Denmark who were visiting with friends on a vacation here in the States. A Sunday morning brunch was arranged by a friend who was in on their secret for them and their parents and a dozen or so of their friends. But it was no ordinary brunch; they had prearranged with me to help them tie the knot. When I arrived I was introduced simply as a friend. The bride and groom did not tip anyone off with their dress—they chose to wear matching tropical shirts for the occasion. Before the bacon and eggs were served, I called everyone out onto the patio and announced that this was, in fact, a wedding. Surprise!
I'm the founding minister of Wedded Your Way. I love helping people tie the knot!
